"Ten Little Craft Unions" (sheet music)


Ten little craft unions working in a mine.

One went on strike, and then there were nine.

 

Nine little craft unions all digging slate.

One made a contract; then there were eight.

 

Eight little craft unions work for hours eleven.

One struck for shorter hours; then there were seven.

 

Seven little craft unions all making bricks.

One got black-listed; then there were six.

 

Six little craft unions trying to keep alive.

One scabbed on all the rest; then there were five.

 

Five little craft unions working in a store.

One wasn't recognized; then there were four.

 

Four little craft unions, good as they could be.

One wasn't good enough; then there were three.

 

Three little craft unions working in a crew.

One committed mutiny; then there were two.

 

Two little craft unions, both on the run.

One lost its treasury; then there was one.

 

One little craft union, fighting all alone.

Some businessmen bought it; then there was none.
